When our grandchildren began graduating from high school and heading off to college, we wanted to give them money each month during their first year of college.
So in their high school graduation card, we enclosed 10—$100.00 post-dated checks, starting with August of that year and ending the following May. We knew it would come in handy, not only for the grandchildren but for their parents, too. We figured the extra money each month might avoid a call home, asking their parents for a little bit more. Or, it might pay for something that was unexpected.
Our oldest grandson told us many times how he appreciated this. We have been blessed, always knowing how important we are to our grandchildren—because we have let them know how important they are to us.
Note: You could do this in any amount from $10 to $100. And, if you don’t use checks you could always make a monthly electronic deposit.
